I was flipping through my memory banks lately and thought of Gloucester Policeman Keith Trefry. Officer Trefry was one in a million. He’s someone i’ll never forget. I really don’t know much about him. All I know is when i was young about 12 years old and part of a neighborhood gang. Back then Gloucester “GANGS” played each other in different street sports. The worse thing that i remember was an apple fight.
Keith was always watching out for us kids back then. I remember playing street hockey at Maplewood school. Keith would stop his patrol car and wait for someone to score a goal. He then would flash his blue lights and turn on his siren.That was a big deal for us. I hope he knew how much it meant to us.
I’ll always remember his big smile.
When I came across this memorial for him a few weeks ago i thought what a great tribute to someone i knew who made a positive impact in my life.
Take Care Officer Trefry!
